When your business relies on a custom software application that’s beginning to show its age, and the people who wrote the application are no longer available to update it, what do you do?
If you don’t have the complete source code for your custom application, your only solution may be to replace it.
If you answered NO to questions 3, 6, or 9, look for a new solution. If your system is losing data, it’s not going to suddenly fix itself, and the cumulative effect will only get worse. If your application is written with out-of-date tools or won’t run on the most current servers, you may be at risk for security breaches.
If you answered YES to questions 3, 6, and 9 and at least two more questions, you may be able to retain and enhance your existing system.
Deciding whether to create a new software application or to continue to maintain a legacy system is not an easy one. It may feel like you’re abandoning something into which you’ve invested lots of time and money, but ultimately your decision has to be made based on facts, with a focus on your long-term goals for your business.
